Winfield in Columbia County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Shiloh Methodist Church
Shiloh Methodist Church, the outgrowth of the earliest known Methodist place of worship in this community, has had a church building on this site for over 125 years. Originally, services started by a local hermit "who lived by a spring," were held in a "brush arbor" about a mile west of here. A short time later a church was built on this site. In Sept. 1825, after the church was completed, two plots of land were deeded to the four commissioners of the Methodist meetinghouse. One, including the hermit's spring, was from Waters Briscoe, the other, including the site of Shiloh Church, was from Green Dozier. The present church building was erected in 1859.
Erected 1956 by Georgia Historical Commission. (Marker Number 36-03.)
